North Haven Primary School

Japanese


At North Haven School we aim to engage students in an enjoyable and varied Japanese program so that learning a second language is both a fun and rewarding experience. Each class attends two x 45 minute Japanese lessons a week and classes cover a variety of topics throughout the year.

Students also have a chance to attend special events throughout the year, such as the Western Region 6/7 Hiragana Competition and Japanese Quiz Day.

Our Japanese program is planned using the Australian Curriculum. Students complete various assessment tasks each term. These tasks show their ability to speak, listen to, read and write Japanese, plus their cultural understanding of Japan. There is more information available here: http://v7-5.australiancurriculum.edu.au/languages/japanese/context-statement

This year we are very lucky to have 2 Japanese teachers at North Haven Amy Carter & Jordan Langdon. Please feel free to come and see the Japanese teachers in the Japanese room (Seals Unit) Monday Thursday, if you would like to know more about our program.
